Free Kitten to Good Home



Ah, spring. The robins have returned, the grass is greening up, the weather is warming, and ................Edward is shedding like a banshee. Not that I know for sure that banshees shed, but if they did, I imagine it would be similar to the fur storm going on at our house right now. A sure sign of spring at our house is the lovely layer of white fluff that covers every surface.

So, bright girl that I am, I decided to brush Ed today, so as to lower his chances of coughing up an enormous hairball or two due to his incessant licking. I brushed and brushed and brushed him. He wasn't very happy about the whole ordeal and swatted at me a couple of times and was generally grumpy throughout the process. But the sense of victory that I felt was overwhelming when I realized that the volume of fur I brushed off of him was roughly the size of a large kitten. So, if anyone would like a ragdoll kitten, I have enough fur to get you started at least. Internal organs might be a bit tricky.

Relief. I thought you were considering giving up Edward. I haven't brushed my kitties yet. Or brushed their teeth. That will be fun.

Nope, Crazy Eddie is a keeper. His coat wasn't as fluffy last year, but now that he is older he has grown quite an impressive coat of fur. Good luck with the kitties!

Remember when Ed was that small and cute? Now he is a wideload of a kitty.

I have a friend who's a biochemist. Maybe he can create a freak kitty for us.

So I guess I can't talk you into taking a few bags full of Shepherd/Husky mutt hair? Dang.

Banshees actually shed their skin much like snakes. It's true!

Does the ragdoll kitten come with the guitar or no?

Lu-Now he is the big dumb frat boy kitty that we always knew he would be.
Beth-Do it! We could make a fortune. While Ed was relatively cheap, Ragdolls sell for as much as $1,000 in some pet stores/
Bubs-I think we should combine our fur collections and make sweaters.
Mr. Miller-Why don't I believe you? Are you a person who has lied to me?
Dale-For an extra $300 or so we could throw in a used Fender.

My dog sheds like this year round, regardless of the weather. Friends and relatives have learned not to wear dark colors when they visit.

I got lucky with Mr. Marbles. Either he doesn't shed, or he sheds in a place in my condo that I haven't found yet.

I'm planning on buying stock in the lint roller company.
